Preparing Your Server
- Step 1: Loader Setup
The Loader Object is a helper object to enable easyPDF SDK on the server-side environment. It eliminates many of the server-side configurations that you would otherwise have to deal with.
- Step 2: Microsoft Office Setup
This example shows how to make Microsoft Word ready for server use. All you need to do here is to make sure that there are no pop-up dialogs from Office products during PDF conversion.
- Step 3: COM Security Setup
To make the easyPDF SDK objects run properly on the server-side environment.

- “easyPDF SDK setup was very straightforward, unlike our experience with other products. We wrote just a few lines of code to start using it.” Read the case study
- “We evaluated many PDF tools and drivers. We even wrote our own. Except for BCL’s easyPDF SDK, all had limitations we couldn’t live with. Some only converted from MS Office and not very well. Others could not do annotation or text stamping on PDF documents. None were as easy to use and as easy to integrate.” Read the case study
